At once I whisked myself away from my desk, grabbed my keys and was out the door without a second thought. To the grocery store! No time to dilly dally, I picked up all the fixins for a bbq and salad and rushed home. I mean --> all people, you Sunday drivers, you Sunday grocery shoppers, stand back. Girl on mission coming through!
So this is what I did. Got home, started the coals. Now you may think I'd be embarassed to tell you, I've grilled before but never lighted up charcoals before today. Ok, maybe I am a little ashamed. But I'm pushing boundaries here, today, lighting the bbq, tomorrow, the gun range! And I'm not even kidding. Guns scare the bejeezus out of me but tomorrow I will face that! Enough chatter though, onward to food.
Coals started, I threw together a salad. I often wonder, why do other people's salads always look better than mine? Today I wasn't disappointed, this here lovely salad worked itself out for us.
It's just a bag of Italian lettuce with mushrooms, tomato, and feta. I used Giada's Garlic Parmesan Vinaigrette, which was pretty good. Bought at Target, naturally.
Then made the turkey burger patties:
I'm not lying when I tell you that I make the best turkey burgers ever. I don't even like to have them at restaurants because they just can't get it like mine.
How arrogant Kaloula. Honestly.
Here's what I put in them: 1 lb ground turkey, 1/3 cup of your favorite salsa, 1/4 cup chopped onion, a few good shakes of worcestershire, then seasoned with seasoned salt and garlic powder. If they seem a bit on the moist side, I add about 1/4 cup italian bread crumbs.
These are fabulous.
Mine is topped with some browned mushroom and onions. (If I wasn't in such a rush to get said burger in belly, I'd have a better photo!)
Serve with salad and ENJOY.
Don't mind if I do...
